Red Ribbon Week is October 23 – 31, 2023. National Family Partnership provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Campaign. It is a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. In addition, we want parents to feel comfortable talking with their children about substance use and the risks.
